Camino Plans 2017.

It’s that time of year again. Ya es la época del año otra vez.

In 2014, it began with two days on the Camino del Norte, one day from Irún to Donostia and the second day from Donostia to Zarautz. En 2014, empezó con dos días en el Camino del Norte, un día desde Irún hasta Donostia y el segundo de Donostia a Zarautz. 

In 2015, it continued with several days, spread out over the spring and summer, from Zarautz to a final weekend in Cantabria, ending in Santander. En 2015, siguió con muchos días sueltos durante la primavera y verano, desde Zarautz a un fin de semana completo en Cantabria, acabando en Santander.

In 2016, it continued from Santander to that cursed village La Isla in Asturias, where so many peregrinos had to go home due to various maladies. En 2016, siguió desde Santander hasta ese pueblo maldito de La Isla en Asturias, donde tantos peregrinos tenían que volver a casa dada a sus lesiones y/o enfermedades. 

This year, this week actually, I’ll be starting in La Isla and seeing how far I get during my two-weeks off at the summer camp. I feel really unprepared this year as opposed to other years, but what else am I going to do while in the north for two weeks? Might as well see how many kilometres I can cross off in these two weeks. Este año, de hecho esta semana, voy a empezar en La Isla y ver hasta donde puedo llegar durante mis dos semanas libres en el campamento de verano. No me siento nada preparado esta semana como en los años pasados, pero…¿qué otra cosa voy a hacer en el norte durante dos semanas? Hay que ver cuantos kilómetros puedo tachar en estas dos semanas. 

I plan on continuing the Camino del Norte, taking a few days to transfer to the Camino Inglés via Ruta do Mar and arriving in Santiago. El plan es para continuar en el Camino del Norte, cambiar al Camino Inglés por la Ruta do Mar y llegar en Santiago por el Camino Inglés.

Once I have the Compostela and won’t have to worry about the masses of the Camino Frances at all, I’ll be doing the Camino Primitivo in 2018. Then I have two other routes that will be kept secret for now, but summers 2019 and 2020 will be very interesting indeed! Cuando tenga la Compostela y ya no tendré que preocuparme de las aglomeraciones de gente del Camino Frances, el plan es para hacer el Camino Primitivo en 2018. Después tengo pensado dos rutas distintas que voy a guardar secreto por ahora, pero los veranos de 2019 y 2020 van a ser muy interesantes. 

A continuación…

PD: Plans are already changing. I’ll be leaving from Gijón and picking up La Isla-Oviedo next summer before starting the Primitivo. Mis plans ya están cambiando. Voy a empezar en Gijón y coger La Isla-Oviedo el próximo verano antes de empezar el Primitivo.

    • Gracias…posts will be up in the second half of August. Only one day of rain forecast at the moment and looks like afternoon…keeping fingers crossed! You know el Norte 😉

  1. Happy walking! 🙂 Look forward to reading your updates.

    I’d love to do the Camino too someday but my husband and I agreed that when we do it (which can’t really be until our youngest had grown up a bit more), we’ll do it the expensive way… At our age, after a long day’s walk we want to be pampered. No hostel dormitories for us but comfortable beds, good dinners and most importantly a nice hot bath to stretch out in! We also probably would have to plan regular rest days! 🙂

    • Thanks! I started in 2014 and still haven’t arrived! Lol. I enjoy exploring the pueblos too much. So the expensive way is ok, and nothing wrong with a rest day.

  2. Great! Buon Camino. Looking forward to hear from your hike. And tell your hiking friends or hiker wannabes: HYOH! There is no “good” way but only your own way to do it.
